Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

-2020 was a contract-year for Davis. He set career highs in yards (984), TDs (5), catch rate (70.7%) and yards per route run (2.46).

-He matched a previous career high in catches (65).

-Davis posted lines of 3-36-1 (vs. Jacksonville) and 5-69 (at Minnesota) in 2 games without A.J. Brown.

-Davis tested positive for COVID-19 and missed 2 games.

-On the year, Davis finished 31st in PPR points per game. He hit 15+ PPR points 6 times but was shut out in 3 games (including the postseason) for the run-heavy Titans.

-He doesn’t profile as a clear #1 target with the Jets, as they currently feature Denzel Mims, Jamison Crowder and Elijah Moore — plus athletic TE Chris Herndon. Davis’ 3-year deal worth $37.5 million does make him the target favorite.

-Don’t be surprised if the Jets save money by moving on from Crowder, whose slot role could easily go to the undersized Moore.

-Davis will catch passes from rookie BYU QB Zach Wilson. His college accuracy was excellent, but the jump in competition will be a true test.

-We like the potential for this offense with new OC Mike LaFleur. He’s followed Kyle Shanahan from Cleveland to Atlanta to San Francisco since 2014. He’s held roles like offensive intern (Cleveland), offensive assistant (Falcons) and pass game coordinator/WR coach (49ers). LaFleur, brother of Packers HC Matt LaFleur, is only 34.

-If the Shanahan principles remain (as expected) look for pre-snap motion and play-action passing to help open windows in the passing game.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Davis largely shoved aside durability concerns during a career-best 2020. Only 26, it’s quite possible his arrow is still pointing up.

Going from Ryan Tannehill to Zach Wilson will almost certainly prove to be a sharp downgrade in 2020. But a still-poor looking Jets defense should help stabilize the offense’s pass volume. Current projections have Davis for 114 targets, making him a value target in the double digit rounds of drafts.

Jets WR Corey Davis (shoulder) is ready for the start of training camp on Wednesday, according to The Athletic's Connor Hughes. Davis hurt his shoulder at a May OTA session and didn't do much in minicamp. But it looks like a non-issue now. Davis is coming off a strong 2020 season and got paid like a #1 WR by the Jets in free agency. He's a value at his WR54 ADP.

Jets WR Corey Davis suffered what's believed to be a minor shoulder injury at OTAs on Thursday, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports. Dr. James Andrews is taking a look at Davis' scans to confirm the diagnosis. This doesn't sound like something that'll impact Davis' 2021 season, but we'll keep an eye on it. He's missed 8 games through 4 NFL seasons.

The Jets and WR Corey Davis agreed to a 3-year, $37.5 million deal with $27 million guaranteed, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Davis had an up-and-down 4 seasons in Tennessee but is coming off a career-best 65-984-5 line. He ranked 5th in yards per route run among 84 WRs with 50+ targets. We'll credit OC Arthur Smith for some of that, but Davis has never lacked ability. It's why he was the 5th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft. And he remains in his prime at just 26 years old. New York isn't an ideal landing spot, with new OC Mike LaFleur and the QB spot standing as question marks. But Davis has the potential to carve out a big target share. He figures to be joining Jamison Crowder and Denzel Mims in the Jets' 3-WR set.
